Jennifer Aniston parties in Mexico… with Gerard Butler!


Jennifer Aniston decided to bring some of her closest friends down to Mexico to celebrate her 41st birthday a little early. Her birthday is this coming Thursday, and Aniston spent the weekend sunbathing and hanging out with her friends in Los Cabos, Mexico, which is probably her favorite vacation spot. Her friends, like Courteney Cox and Sheryl Crow, were sunbathing too, but for this visit, Aniston added someone new to the group – Gerard Butler! Unfortunately, the photo agencies we have access to don’t have any photos of Gerard hanging out in particular with Aniston, we only have a couple of Gerard solo (below), but The Daily Mail has some good ones here. Gerard is playing around with binoculars, he’s wearing baby-blue swim trunks, and he looks like he lost some weight since we last saw him on a beach – the now-infamous “Crazy Gut and Moobs” incident.

She’s certainly a creature of habit – and why change a good thing?

Jennifer Aniston headed to one of her favorite getaway spots, Los Cabos, Mexico, where the actress is getting a jump start celebrating her 41st birthday – Aniston’s big day is actually Feb. 11 – with a group of friends. But this year, she had a surprise birthday guest: Gerard Butler, her costar in the upcoming comedy, The Bounty Hunter. Last month, the two were spotted laughing and spending a lot of time together at the Golden Globes.

Aniston flew a large group of pals including Butler, Courteney Cox, her husband David Arquette and Sheryl Crow, whose birthday is also Feb. 11, to the One & Only Palmilla resort Thursday evening where the group is staying in a beautiful waterfront villa.

Friday, there was one thing on the agenda: fun in the sun! Aniston showed off her famously fabulous figure in a bikini as the pals lounged on the patio.

[From People]

My only quibble is that I dislike this movement (and Aniston is not alone) of girls who do the mismatched bikini bottoms and tops. To me, it looks sloppy, but it could totally be that Aniston just picked out her most comfortable bottom and her most comfortable top, and they happened to be mismatched.

So, is it true love for Gerard and Jennifer? Since all of the “are they dating?” stuff at the Golden Globes, Gerard has gone to dinner with Jessica Simpson, been associated with Reese Witherspoon in the tabloids, and has had a public makeout session with some random violin player in Santa Monica. So… yeah. Butler and Aniston might be getting it on. They might be friends with benefits. I wouldn’t be surprised, and I actually think it’s likely. But I just doubt it’s a real dating relationship. My boyfriend is a slut.

    Gosh could they have developed a *gasp* friendship..? I don’t buy a relationship based on hormones but I do on developing a friendly relationship. After all Gerry Butler is also a very funny guy and Aniston has been described as warm and let the insanity begin in …one ..two …three..

  2. Roma says:

    My bikini’s almost always mismatch, but that is due to function over fashion. I play a lot of beach vball and only a few tops are able to contain the ladies, so they get heavy rotation! I just find it amusing that JA debuts her new men while she’s in a bikini (think Mayer)… I think that’s going to be how I roll now.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    I also do not like that mismatched top/bottom look for a bikini.

    however, her bod is smokin’. I know she does yoga, but I’m wondering exactly what her workout consists of, and how often she does work out.

    and agree with you Rosalee…maybe they’re just friends, like the rest of the people she brought along? some people make a movie together and wind up being friends for life.

  4. Beth says:

    “Los Cabos, Mexico, which is probably her favorite vacation spot”. Favorite? More like only vacation spot. Maybe she’ll mix it up and go to Cancun next time. I don’t know why Jennifer keeps going after losers. You would think she would have learned her lesson after John Mayer.

  5. Tanked says:

    It looks like they are having fun. I don’t think she is pining for Brad anymore because this girl loves her freedom. Being a stepmom to six kids, heck no. She had him in his best years. Is that Courtney’s spine I see in that pic?

  6. wif says:

    So much for the Cox pregnancy rumours. The bikini tells all.

  7. Eileen Yover says:

    OMG he looks hot.

  8. Solveig says:

    Hey! Where’s Gerard’s bloating belly?

  9. Jazz says:

    I don’t think they’re dating, it’s just PR for their movie, and good for her if they are. Why is it on all the Golden Globes coverage a few weeks ago, on every website and magazine, there was Jen and Gerard smack bang in the middle of all of it. What about the actual winners?! I grow weary of these PR shenanigans.

    Courteney’s spine in that pic scares me.

  10. alex says:

    I know it wouldn’t take long for a aniston fan to bring up “B” name, let it go people, enjoy your idol thread without bringing up the past. This is why the tab continue to write their shitty stories and some people continue to believe it. LET IT GO!!!!

  11. lucy2 says:

    I don’t like the mis-matched top and bottom either, unless it’s for function like Roma said.
    I know a lot of people who vacation in the same place every year, but I would get bored with it, I like going to different places.
    Forget Aniston’s work out, I’d like to know how Butler went from flab to so not flabby that fast!
    I bet they’re friends or friends with benefits. Both single, have fun, but it is tiresome if it’s done to promote a movie. I guess we’ll see after the movie comes out, if they still hang out or not.

  12. SageAdvice says:

    I don’t like mismatched bikinis either.

    I highly doubt they are dating. I think they are probably friends/friends with benefits like others are saying and there is nothing wrong with that.

    alex: congrats on being the first to call her someone’s “idol” even though no one has said anything even close to idolization. And the person who brought up the “B” name said, in their opinion, that she felt that Jennifer had “LET IT GO”. Calm down and be relevant or don’t comment at all.

  13. Feebee says:

    I think she mentioned to Gerrid that she was going to Mexico, he said that sounded like a great idea, she said why don’t you come along, he said why not. And the Villa probably has more than 3 bedrooms, room for all.

    We’re past When Harry met Sally. Girls and Boys can be just friends.

  14. l says:

    Jen OBVIOUSLY does not get bored easily.

    She goes to the same vacation spot time after time, she’s had the same hair for years (even in her movies), same wardrobe (again, even in her movies), same PR stradegy pre-movie release, same frickin’ EVERYTHING!

    I’m not a Jen hater, I promise, but omg, she has got to start doing something different, ANYTHING, if she does not want to seem so transparent & Predictable!

  15. Madelyn Rose says:

    God, she looks great in her bikini…amd at 41! That is inspiring.

    Yes, I too doubt she is with Gerard….just PR for the Bounty Hunter. But it sure looks like they’re having fun!

  16. Lem says:

    I hope she knows Joe Francis has that house wired tight! She should have better choices in ‘vacation spots’ . imagine how much ‘Jen gone wild’ (if that’s not an oxymoron) footage he has. :rolleyes:

  17. whatever says:

    I agree w/i. It’s the same pattern all over again. Movie coming out–debut new “boyfriend” (are they or aren’t they dating?–for the tabloids). In a bikini, of course. Pretty soon we’ll have nude magazine pics. We’ve already had the People magazine “5 years after ‘you know who’; healthy, happy single” thing. Her PR people have no creativity.

  18. Guest says:

    LEM: They’re actually staying at the one & Only Palmilla resort in a waterfront villa, not at Joe Francis’ place.

    I’m with the others who have said they are friends/friends with benefits. She’s hot and single and so is he. She’s a grown woman whom I’m certain is well aware of his reputation. No reason they can’t have some fun with one another. For the record maybe she is just as carefree about her love life as he is.

  19. Samantha says:

    Ugh, I hate mismatched bikinis. It drives me freaking bonkers. Its fine when you have an excuse such as the volleyball or “I’m two years old and I picked out my own outfit, thats why I’m wearing a tutu and a dinosaur hat”, but otherwise ugh. I can’t stand not matching. Its not like you don’t have the money to buy comfortable bottoms that match the stupid top!! *pokes eyes out*

  20. alex says:

    oh SageAdvice, thank you for setting me right…NOT. First of all the post is about Aniston and should be about her, there was no need to mentioned the ex, and that is the problem with some of you aniston’s fans you all can’t help yourselves from bringing up the ex’s name.

  21. Lem says:

    Guest; my bad, she can change it up. lol. if you say so…

    I LOVE that star light lamp thing

  22. jeannified says:

    I HATE that mis-matched thing too, that SO many people do with bikini’s. Ugh!!! It’s like, “Can’t you afford a matching bikini? Seriously!

    Also, the fact that she ALWAYS goes to cabo, shows that she’s not very adventurous and seems to be stuck in a rut! I mean, come on! No wonder Brad got tired of her!

  23. surfer girl says:

    Mismatched bikinis are de rigeur in So Cal — usually on younger women and girls, but Aniston pulls it off.

  24. ElizabethM says:

    “I’m two years old and I picked out my own outfit, thats why I’m wearing a tutu and a dinosaur hat”

    Totally laughed out loud at that, Samantha. One of my bosses is an evil, vile witch. I hate her. Everyone else hates her. Even her bosses hate her. So of course we all enjoy watching the constant parade of clothes she wears because she looks like she was dressed by a six year old on an acid trip. And now I’m desperately hoping she’ll show up wearing a tutu and dinosaur hat. :)

    Back to Aniston: hate the mismatched swimsuits. They may sometimes be necessary for us commoners but for the filty rich, gimme a break. She can afford a well fitting suit that matches.

    On the other topic, I actually like the idea of JenGer so I hoping she’s hitting that. After all if I can’t, I hope she can. :)

  25. snapdragon says:

    her body is amazing, mismatched bikini or not.

  26. Praise St. Angie! says:

    sage, I guess alex only chastises people for using Brad’s name when they make positive comments about Aniston. (as in, she seems to be over him.)

    but make a negative comment (“no wonder Brad got tired of her”) and mention the “B” word? that’s just A-OK.

  27. Kim says:

    Whatever, the semi nude pics W/ Gerard are apparently coming out in W magazine

  28. cherie says:

    Gotta hand it to Gerry and Aniston, though. First, the Golden Globes, and now Cabo. Both famehos working real hard to drum up some interest in their latest movie. They both seem perfect for each other. And, this is her pattern. Every time she has a movie coming out, all of the sudden she has a new guy she may or may not be dating, does some nude or semi-nude pics, and talks about her love life (past or present). If you don’t have talent, you use your ass and personal life. That’s the way it goes.

  29. SageAdvice says:

    Praise: The world makes sense again.

    I’ll tell ya one thing, it’s hard to not to have strong emotional ties with the people you make movies/do plays with. You either hate them or love them.

    And Jennifer and Gerard seem like they made friends working on the film and they probably have to hang out a lot doing studio sponsored publicity, so it makes sense that they’d be close by now.

    And by the way, it might be “boring” for some people to go to a favorite spot for a vacation or to have the same hair but I say, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

    I like certain restaurants and frequent them. I used to go to Disneyland every year for my birthday-until college impeded upon that. My family took a vacation to Las Vegas every summer until two years ago.

    Variety is great but I don’t understand why people get on her for finding something she likes and sticking with it. Attacking someone for being “boring” seems like grasping at straws to me.

    Now, this is my personal opinion. I am not saying that you HAVE to be ok with her choosing the same vacation spot.

    I am not saying that you HAVE to like her, nor am I saying that you are a “hater” for not liking her.

    Does that cover all my bases?

  30. SageAdvice says:

    Oh and cherie, nice recycling of that CNN entertainment show’s nonsense that even they couldn’t really prove.

    She’s allowed to go to her favorite vacation spot for her BIRTHDAY with her friends, i.e. Courtney Cox and Sheryl Crow and now, seemingly, Gerard Butler.

    She’s not going on some publicity vacay with Gerard by themselves and hugging up on him and such. She’s off on a birthday vacation with her girlies and a hot guy.

    Show me pictures where she’s kissing him in front of the paps, and then we’ll talk about how a birthday vacation is “famewhoring”.

  31. lilred says:

    Geeze, they’re both single.Why the hell shouldn’t they hit the sheets if that’s what makes THEM happy.

  32. princess pea says:

    Hey, is Sheryl Crow seeing anyone? Maybe Jen invited Gerry along because she thought they’d hit it off. Or, AGAIN, maybe they’re *gasp* friends. What a shocker, I know…

  33. Praise St. Angie! says:

    sage, not to mention that they’ve BOTH said, over and over, that they’re NOT dating each other.

    then people are up in arms because she’s photographed in a bikini. HELLO?! she’s on a BEACH VACATION. what is she supposed to wear by the pool or on the beach? (btw, I agree on finding something that works for you, and sticking with it. I also don’t understand why her being “boring” or “stuck in a rut” are reasons to hate her. reasons not to be a fan, sure, but hating for those reasons? wacky.)

    then they’re up in arms because of that mag cover “5 years after”…

    “she’s still talking about her ex!” they scream! yeah, except THERE WAS NO INTERVIEW. the only people quoted were “sources” and “close friends”. and why THOSE sources are anymore valid than the sources provided for the Brangelina stories (the ones people NEVER believe) is beyond me.

    but hey, to quote our resident loonies, “haters gonna hate”.

  34. Seer says:

    Oh, where would we be without our saintly holy of holies: those people who condemn others who dare say ANYthing negative about celebrities. Look out people if you want to express your opinion, because we have to deal with the commentary police! Thank goodness we are constantly scolded on a daily basis by their wisdom and goodness, so that we may be corrected of our mistakes.

  35. I have! I do! I will! says:

    She knows the paps are there and she LOVES it.

    Bikini in Cabo pics are getting truly old. In ten years time she will still be there in a bikini with headlines screaming “Fabulous at Fifty”.


  36. corine says:

    @Seer. It’s a pattern. Anyone who says something negative about Aniston has to be prepared for her fans to counter every comment you make. Then, they claim they aren’t fans (yeah, right), but just replying against all those unfair opinions against the always-wronged Aniston who is “hot, happy, healthy, single and fabulous” And if you disagree, there is something really wrong w/ you–you are a “hater,” a “loony,” etc.

    I agree with others–I think jen is up to her usual pr routine, too. CNN/Showbiz tonite said it best. Jen’s Pre-Movie release check list: 1. Be seen with new hot guy, 2. Racy pics and 3. Love life rehash in media, or something like that.

    Both sides of the triangle really play the media pretty well–it’s how they get away with making bad movies, yet still keeping up their public profile as A-listers. I wonder how long they can keep it up, though? Can you make a whole career out of the tabloids? It seems so. Sad.

  37. SageAdvice says:

    Whining about your opinion being commented upon is ridiculous. Other people read this and have every right to disagree with your opinion, just like you have every right to disagree with mine.

    No one has said you can’t not like Jennifer Aniston and no one has said you are “loony” or a “hater”, at least not on this thread.

    I have personally never said that Jennifer Aniston is “hot, happy, healthy, single and fabulous”. But there is nothing wrong with people who think she is. There is also nothing wrong with people who don’t think she is. I think some of you are determined to prove that everyone is out to get you, when really that isn’t the case.

    The CNN Showbiz “checklist” was already debunked by both Jennifer and Gerard because both have said multiple times that they aren’t dating. They went to the Golden Globes because they are promoting a film. And they goofed off in front of the cameras; it was really clear that they were not trying to seriously show that they were dating. They were pulling faces the whole time.

    The second one I’ll reserve judgment on although I cannot remember a second “racy” set of pictures to promote a film other than the GQ ones. Can someone post a link or tell me other instances where was doing publicity for a movie and was naked on the cover of a magazine?

    The third one, again, I’ll reserve judgment on until the release date of The Bounty Hunter comes closer because she hasn’t given any interviews so far this year where she’s mentioned the other Triangle members. Unless I’m wrong, and again, if someone could post a link or tell me where I could find an interview where she mentions her ex-husband.

    EDIT: And by the way, I just Googled some covers of hers and to be honest, I don’t see anything different about her doing “racy” photos compared to everyone else. Also, isn’t it a bit hypocritical of some (not ALL) of you to complain about her doing racy photoshoots when some (not ALL) of you are Angelina fans and don’t complain one teensy bit about Angelina’s past photoshoots or her incredibly intimate photos of her breastfeeding?

  38. Camille says:

    I think they are just friends, I don’t sense any kind of sexual chemistry there, at all.

    And Gerry looks like he is sucking his stomach in in that pic. *shudder*

  39. corine says:

    For Sage who said:”No one has said you are “loony” or a “hater” at least not on this thread.”

    Look above your comment and read–someone talks about loonies/haters. And, that’s not the first time, so you’re not paying attention.

    CNN’s editorial hasn’t been “debunked” by Aniston. So, because she says something, then it must be so? She’s said a number of things to the media which haven’t been true. When she has a film out, she dates (or pretend dates) some guy. It doesn’t matter what she says, if you see her on the red carpet all over some guy, she’s obviously trying to get the rumor mill started. That’s what CNN has noticed.

    I guess it’s obvious to many other people except for you that Aniston does certain things for pr and attention. In your world, she can do no wrong and everything is perfectly explainable,
    but some of us don’t see celebs in such an innocent, rosy light.

  40. SageAdvice says:

    corine: If you include yourself in the loony/hater group, it’s not my fault.

    Anyway, CNN’s entire editorial was about how there is a checklist of things she does including dating a new guy.

    Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler have both made official statements saying that they aren’t dating. Shouldn’t she be trying to get him to date her officially? Shouldn’t her representation be screaming about how they are dating? Shouldn’t the dreaded Huvane be all over telling everyone that they are together?

    That Golden Globes thing was clearly a joke. If you couldn’t see that, its not my fault.

    Sure she does certain things for pr and attention. I didn’t say that she didn’t do anything for publicity and attention. Point out where I said that, please.

    Every celebrity does stuff for pr and attention. I just wonder why people call her a famewhore for doing the same stuff every celebrity does.

  41. I have! I do! I will! says:

    Does anyone think she’s going down the Madonna path? I can totally see her at fifty flashing her cooch and butt…in Cabo.

    BTW her lips look like a paper cut in the very top pic lol.

  42. crash2GO2 says:

    He is sucking it in HARD in that one photo. LOL! The girls look great, but Cheryl looks too thin IMO. Has for some years now. I applaud Courtney and Jennifer for going the fuller, softer yet fit aging route vs the stringy, hard, fit aging route. I fear I myself tend toward the stringy.

  43. Best of British says:

    I’m a creature of habit too – if I find something I like, i go back to it a lot. I holiday every year in Phuket (because its close to where I live, I can get a direct flight and be there in 3 hours). I frequent a handful of good restaurants where I know I’ll get a quality steak and a fab bottle of red wine, or some beautiful seafood. I even have my favourite brands of clothing and footwear which I stick to more than not. Its the same with the cars i buy and the bands i listen to. If Coldplay make an album, I rush out and buy it. Same with U2, the Chillis, etc. Seriously, there is nothing wrong with finding perfection in your own mind and wanting to recreate it by going there time and again. That’s not boring, that’s sticking to what you know you love.

  44. Best of British says:

    Can I also say its got a lot to do with age as well. Both Aniston and myself are not spring chickens any more – I’m nearly 36 and have travelled the world. So has Aniston. These days its more about quality and convenience for me, than jet setting here and there on a whim. I can understand why she keeps going back to Mexico, its gorgeous at that resort. One of the few other resort type of places near LA is Hawaii and that place is a shit hole.

  45. Rosalee says:

    @ I have, I do, I will, currently I’m 49 I turn 50 this year if I had Aniston’s smoking body, damn I’d be showing that baby off, no hesitation. She’s hot, she’s single and I want to be Jennifer Aniston, her life looks wonderful..without the constant tabloid crap of course.

  46. corine says:

    @ Sage: insulting me only proves that you are childish person with no real points to make. I’m sorry if my opinion differs from yours, as you so clearly believe that you are the only one who is RIGHT. Your comments are just pointless rehashing of the same thing–you have proven NOTHING other than 1) you are a devoted fan and 2) willing to spend ALL DAY here proving it.
